Highland Expeditions are the best. You can stop looking now. They are absolute pros in their business. You are in 100% completely capable hands from the time you land in Nepal till when you leave. We took a 21 day trek with them to Everest Base Camp, going to Gokyo Lakes, summiting Gokyo Ri, then going over the Cho La Pass and finally to Base Camp. The next day we summited Kala Patthar and then began our hike out. We stayed in luxury tea houses where they were available, which were so worth it. Our Guide, Prasant and porter BB were incredibly helpful, friendly and always looking out for us. They are absolute pros. We were taken care of like kings and queens, supported each day and they gave us the leeway to change our day and schedule around as we needed. We saw many other guides from other companies along our trek and never once did we say to ourselves that we wished “that” other guide was our guide. Prasant is hands down a Gold level guide and if you get him you will be a fortunate group. Passang Sherpa at Highland worked with us to create a custom trip, including exactly what we wanted in the trip, including an extra acclimatization day in Namche (highly recommended!). He responds quick on email, you get his personal cell and also his employees. This was a bucket list for us and something we had been dreaming about for years. It exceeded our expectations in every way. From our pre-tour in Kathmandu to our amazing teahouses along the way to our stay in Kathmandu to our farewell pizza dinner with Passang and Prasant. This is a big decision, we spent hours researching different companies. We are beyond happy with our decision to go with Highland Expeditions.
